Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbaad
Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee (mp3/english)
This was taken from lecture given by our Noble Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbaad al-Badr, hafidhahullah entitled أثر العبادات في حياة المسلم
We begin the lecture with a brief biography of the Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbaad al-Badr. What is the meaning of “ebaadah”? What are some of its types? What are its conditions? How do you know if an action is righteous?
In this portion we finish the introduction with the narrations and statements of our Salafus-Saaleh regarding adhereing to that which the Companions were upon, radiyallaahu ‘anhum.
The Sheikh explains how great evil and innovation can start as something small and then continues with explaining how Taqwa and righteous actions leads to happiness, tranquility, security and increase in provision.
In this lesson we begin with the ayaat in Surat at-Talaq:
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا
And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). (At-Talaq 65:2)
وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا
And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in Allâh, then He will suffice him. Verily, Allâh will accomplish his purpose. Indeed Allâh has set a measure for all things. (At-Talaq 65:3)
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ يُسْرًا
….and whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him. (At-Talaq 65:4)
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يُكَفِّرْ عَنْهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِ وَيُعْظِمْ لَهُ أَجْرًا
…. and whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will remit his sins from him, and will enlarge his reward. (At-Talaq 65:5)
So who from us does not want a way out from every difficulty? Who does not want his or her affairs to become easy? And who does not want his or her sins to be forgiven and reward enlarged?
Listen to what the Sheikh has explained about these ayaat and more…
In this part we study what the Sheikh said regarding how we understand the hadith of Ibn Abbaas that the Messenger, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, said to him:
احْفَظْ اللَّهَ يَحْفَظْكَ
“Preserve Allah and He will Preserve You.”
And also the tremendous benefit in the statement of the Sheikh, “Get to know Allah in times of ease and He will know you in times of hardship.”
